5 Benefits To Using Wordpress Web Design Sunshine Coast
When it comes to building a website, the variety of options can be somewhat overwhelming. From WordPress web design Sunshine Coast, to platforms that offer DIY templates like Squarespace, Wix, or domain hosting services such as GoDaddy and Crazy Domains… the options are endless, and it can be difficult to know which way to go.
Having operated in the web design space for more than a decade, we’ve personally found WordPress to be a superior website builder and content management system, offering the widest range of benefits for our clients.
Here’s a few reasons why we use, and recommend WordPress web design Sunshine Coast for all your website needs!
Ease of Use + Flexibility
There’s no doubt about it, WordPress is user friendly and offers plenty of flexibility, including drag and drop templates, ability to easily add new pages, images and content, with a backend dashboard that’s easy to navigate.
Complete Control + Customisation
One of the reasons why we recommend WordPress web design Sunshine Coast over other options is due to the fact that WordPress offers complete control and customisation.
Let us walk you through 2 common scenarios we often come across with our clients:
- Client Has No Control: Often we find our client’s old websites have been built by a web developer using complex technology the client does not understand… this means the client is completely dependent on the web developer for any changes, often at a very steep cost.
- Website Is Not Customisable: The other scenario we come across is when a client has tried to build a website themselves using a DIY templated platform… often these templates are rigid and do not allow for the right customisation or integrations required for your website to effectively support your business!
With WordPress, and a bit of practice for those who have time, the technology is friendly enough so that clients can be shown how to make simple changes if they wish. The client has complete control and ownership of their site.
At Web-Sta we’ve created tutorials so our clients can learn how to use their WordPress dashboard giving them the option to make changes themselves. If our clients prefer for us to do this for them, we can do that too.
Ability to Add to Site As Business Expands
One of the cool things about WordPress web design Sunshine Coast, is the ability for the site to grow with you.
Quite often our clients start with a basic website that includes home, about, services and contact pages. As the business grows, we can then add additional pages and features such as a blog page, portfolio, case studies, and even more complex features such as a shopping cart.
Reliable + Secure
WordPress is renowned for its reliability and security. At Web-Sta, WordPress helps us keep our clients information safe through fully managed hosting services, ensuring sites perform optimally and remain spam free.
Built For SEO
SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) is arguably one of the most important activities that will ensure your website is a successful asset for your business. When designed and optimised using key words, it allows for your website to be discovered through Google searches.
WordPress is designed for SEO marketing. While having a WordPress website alone doesn’t necessarily mean you will rank on Google’s first page, it does give us an advantage over other platforms when it comes to SEO activities.
And there you have it, some of the many benefits that WordPress can offer you and your business! To find out more about our WordPress web design Sunshine Coast services, simply contact Web-Sta today.
